The Urban Assault Ride™ Scavenger Hunt comes to Berkeley this Sunday, May 2 and there is still time to sign up: Deadline is Friday, April 30 at 6pm to get in on the fun. Even if you can’t participate in the Urban Assault Ride, please come down to the after party starting around 12 noon Sunday for additional fun and games, good food and New Belgium beer–the proceeds from beer sales also go to your local bicycle coalition.
The Urban Assault Ride™ is a truly unique cycling event…and quickly becoming one of the biggest in country! Here’s how it works: You and your teammate will set out on a quest around Berkeley for ‘checkpoints’ on your favorite two-wheeled steeds. At each checkpoint, you’ll drop your bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course guided by EBBC volunteers, then remount your bikes and hit the streets for more.
The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. You choose your own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if you can pull a mean big-wheel powerslide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide
After your pedal-powered adventure, your team will cross the finish line and enter a massive celebration of bikes and beer at Civic Center Park in downtown Berkeley. The after party is just as much fun as the ride itself, thanks to the craziest raffle prize contest you’ll ever experience. Pick a partner and we’ll see you there!
